Hot Dog

1. colloq
To perform clever manoeuvres such as spins and turns while skiing, surfing or skate-boarding. Hot dogger; one who hot dogs.

I've usually heard it to refer to somebody who is of average talent, but does a lot of showy stuff to attract attention.

Here's another analogy I will call the "stupid hat syndrome":
Say you go to a party wearing a silly hat that makes you look like a fop. People notice the hat right off the bat and feel obligated to comment, so they say, "hey, nice hat." Maybe one person will say, "Take that stupid hat off," but by that point you think the hat is a surefire social magnet.

Sometimes that attention getting joke is a good one, but it sticks out because it is the wrong tone for the piecee and you have to cut it. Just be suspicious of something in your script that gets all the attention, it could be for the wrong reasons.
